ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Caution: Avoid shopping or making important decisions all day today. The Moon is in Aries.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): This is a great day to put your best foot forward and go after what you want. Yes, this is a poor day for important decisions; nevertheless, you can accomplish a lot! Keep slogging away at a steady pace and you’ll be pleased at what you get done.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You can make great strides studying or working with travel plans or medicine and the law. It’s a bit of a goofy day and yet, you can maintain your focus. More than that, you’re willing to do routine, mind-numbing tasks to get them done. Bravo!
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Keep a steady pace dealing with inheritances, insurance matters, taxes, debt and shared property. You’ll be amazed at how much you can accomplish if you keep at it. However, avoid important decisions and major expenditures. Just work.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Cancer is a sign known for its staying power. Today you will exhibit amazing endurance doing any task at hand, especially routine, boring tasks. You’ll be successful sitting down with others and working out problems about how to get things done.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’re in work mode! Not only will you do menial tasks with a sense of determination, whatever you do will have a payoff for a long time in the future. You can also do something that will contribute favorably to your health, especially your bones and your teeth.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): This is a strong day for sports, the arts or any creative activity because you have the stamina to hone your skill and talent. You won’t mind doing exercises or repeating something again and again until you get it right. The old joke is true: “How do you get to Carnegie Hall?” “Practice.”
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You can be extremely productive at home today with renovating projects or cleaning because you’re in the zone. You are going to focus in a steady line on one task and keep going.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): This is a strong day for writers or those who communicate for a living or drive for a living. You have an earnest, serious sense of purpose and you will keep going relentlessly until you finish what you need to get done.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Although this is poor day for major purchases or expenditures, it’s a great day to do financial planning. Figure out what you want to achieve and how you want to earn money.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): This can be a productive day because fiery Mars is in your sign dancing beautifully with your ruler Saturn. You won’t overlook details, you’ll like doing careful planning for the future, and your personal comfort is not as important as getting the job done.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Some kind of project requires you to work behind the scenes today. Whether you’re working on the sidelines or working alone, you will accomplish much because this is a heads-down day. You’ll pay great attention to detail and be happy to do routine work.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Discussions with groups and teamwork with others will be productive today because everyone is prepared to pull their own load. The advice and input from someone older or more experienced could be very beneficial. (Don’t spend money on anything except food today.)
IF NOVEMBER 24 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Author Spider Robinson (1948) shares your birthday today. You are intense, spirited and energetic. You work hard and expect to be appreciated for your efforts. Youíre individualistic and assertive about your opinions. You’re also lively and fun-loving when you choose. You seek a carefree existence, which sometimes includes isolation. In the next year, a major change might occur, perhaps something as significant as whatever happened around 2004.
